Rep. Mimi Walters:  GOP Tax Reform Plan Will Help Create Jobs and Allow You to Keep More of Your Hard-Earned Paycheck

Washington, DCToday, Congresswoman Mimi Walters (California-45) released the following statement regarding the unified Republican plan for tax reform, announced today.

“The tax code is stuck in a bygone era.  The 1980s tax rules we currently live by were created for a 1980s economy.  Hard-working Americans find the 70,000 pages of the tax code nearly impossible to navigate and often need tax professionals to help submit their tax return. It is too complicated, too burdensome, and too costly.

“Today, Republicans proposed a tax reform framework that is simple and fair.  It will deliver a much needed pay raise for middle-class Americans, encourage job-creation, and also be simple enough for tax returns to be filed on a single postcard-sized form.  Orange County job creators and small businesses will see their lowest tax rate since the 1930s, increasing economic opportunity and standards of living for everyone in our community.”

“It is time for the tax code to join the 21st Century and restore a dynamic American economy.  I am confident this framework will help deliver the tax code Americans deserve.”

Walters represents California’s 45th District and serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
